The Shallowford Bridge is open again, according to the newspaper of record. Also, it reports that the “Noontootla Creek Bridge” is closed, unfortunately without telling us which of the several bridges across the creek they may mean.
There is a new restaurant in the old Blue Ridge Brewery space, Whiskey & Water, featuring seafood. Apparently, they’ve been open at least since Christmas. There is a menu on their website, along with some photos. Looks like a slight remodel. The photos of the food look real good. I’m still under my rock, so I haven’t tried it.
